Formed by San Francisco producer and multi-instrumentalist Marc Capelle in 2017, the Red Room Orchestra is a collective of popular, jazz, classical, and electronic composers and performers who’ve played and recorded alongside the Bad Seeds, the Plastic Ono Band, Cibo Matto, Oingo Boingo, Sonic Youth, CAKE, American Music Club, Lou Harrison, the Steve Reich Ensemble, the Nels Cline Singers, Rodriguez, Iggy Pop, Tune-Yards, Bill Frisell, and more. They’ve offered live renderings of the music of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks and Wild at Heart, reinterpretations of the soundtracks of Wes Anderson’s Rushmore and The Royal Tenenbaums, Paul Thomas Anderson’s Boogie Nights, the Coen Brothers’ The Big Lebowski, and for SFFILM they composed and performed original scores for the short films from Stephen Parr’s Oddball Films archive. At Netflix is a Joke: The Festival, they were the house band for Seth Rogen’s live reads of Seinfeld, When Harry Met Sally, and Clueless. They have performed at The Chapel for SF Sketchfest, at Outside Lands, Clusterfest and at Symphony Space in NYC. The Red Room Orchestra projects are co-curated and produced by SF Sketchfest’s David Owen.
